Drive Question- Royersford, pa to City Avenue Crowne Plaza

Hi

Hoping some locals can give me insight. I will be in the area for work next week, staying at the Staybridge Suites in Royersford. On Thursday morning I need to be at the Crowne Plaza off City Ave for a 8:30 am training. Google and AAA has me using 422 to 76 to City but I imagine the drive will be horrible at that time, is there a better route using back roads, which would be quicker. It looks like US30 Lancaster Ave would be a option if I took 724 in Royersford to 23 to 29 to 30 to city ave, but not sure best way to get there

Thanks

Tony

PS Training ends at 11:00 am so I assume 76 and 422 would be the options for a return trip at that hour

It is hard to avoid Rt. 76 when driving from Royersford to Bala Cynwyd. Route 30 is not a good alternative as there are many traffic lights as well as congestion. I would suggest to try leaving early in order to beat the traffic. If you time your arrival to 8:00 am I think you will be ok. Tune into KYW 1060 AM for traffic updates on the 2's. If 76 E is bumper to bumper, you can bail out at Gulph Mills (to Rt 320/Montgomery Ave) or Conshohocken State Rde (to Rt 23). bring your GPS. Good luck!

Are there any back roads to go from downtown Philadelphia to 100 North 5th Street in Reading? I so do not want to use the expressway at rush hour tonight. Thanks, Robin
